The Chevrolet Corvette has been a record-breaking performance car since the day it was first unveiled in the 1950s. Over the last half a century-plus, the Corvette has continued to defy the odds by increasing its power, speed, and efficiency, earning several high honors along the way, including multiple “Car of the Year” awards.
The latest iteration is the 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1, which was recently unveiled in Dubai. The new ZR1 is the most powerful Corvette ever made, laying out a whopping 755 horsepower from its massive 6.2-liter V8 engine. This engine also boasts an insane torque rating of 715 lb-ft. These numbers effectively beat out the Dodge Challenger and Charger Hellcat, whose 707-horsepower engine has been the one to beat in the last two years.
But the engine powering the new C7 Corvette ZR1 doesn’t just make this the most power Corvette ever—it also makes the ZR1 the most powerful General Motors car ever created in the company’s 100-plus years as an automaker.
No word yet on the 0-to-60 mph time quite yet, but experts are estimating it will be under 3 seconds.
